Event: Locavore Frank Serpico in Saugerties, March 31

via Watershed Post

Yep, we know — Serpico is not associated with heirloom tomatoes. But in fact the former NYPD whistleblower has been leading a quiet upstate New York life for many years, and is participating this weekend in an event at the relatively new Saugerties Performing Arts Factory.

Reports the Watershed Post: “‘Against the Grain,’ will showcase the foodie side of some of the area’s most noteworthy nonconformists. For the premiere, she’s picked a winner: Frank Serpico, the onetime undercover officer for the NYPD whose uncompromising honesty got him into such a dramatic peck of trouble back in the 1970s that his story was made into a movie starring Al Pacino.”

They’ll be taping a segment, viewable at greenpeastv.com, in front of a live audience, while Serpico and his cohort prepare gnocchi and stracciatella soup.

Tickets are $75 and must be purchased in advance. Call 845.246.SPAF (7723).
